The Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP) was designed to systemize the mind body links that we all use in out daily lives and based on long term observations, single out key movement qualities and patterns which have the most psychological significance for describing, assessing and interpreting nonverbal behavior. Its structure and focus are based on the psychological profile developed by Anna Freud, with a strong emphasis on development. It's movement language is based on the Laban System of Movement Notation with modifications adaptive to it's psychological focus. The KMP's information about interpersonal psychological functioning is applicable to all age groups; some patterns may even be studied in the womb. In this workshop a "practical" approach will be presented that is designed for verbal therapists to use. This is a basic introduction to a very complex tool. Verbal therapist will leave with a beginning understanding of how to use this in their clinical work.

Experience an introduction to the KMP. Be introduced to the concepts of attuning and clashing and how this looks and feels in movement. Learn about shaping in planes, tension flow and efforts. These parts follow early childhood developmental patterns that can be seen in adulthood. Learn how to identify the patterns and make interventions to help children and adults achieve healing. Learn about the KMP rhythms and how they follow developmental frame works of Freud and Erickson. Music will be used to help participants actively experience each phase and learn how to use music to help utilize interventions and assessments in daily work. Topic area: Assessment.

$150 for 1 day (8 hrs),

Experience and learn a four-part Impulse Reduction Model developed by Angela Wiley and inspired by rhythms of the Kestenberg Movement Profile. This model brings a person through four phases: invitation, excitement, grounding/centering and reflection so as to bring excitement/stimulation and then teach how to ground and gain control. By experiencing these phases with movement, music, art, or verbal/cognitive thinking, one can realize and embody the possibility of choice to ground and gain control when overly stimulated or triggered. This is especially useful in working with trauma survivors, and those struggling with impulse control and with addictions. Angela uses this model in her work with drama, movement and music. The model also has applications in art, writing, traditional talk therapy and others, which will be experienced and discussed.

Because Angela is involved with the Carolina chapter of the ADTA she is offering a discount to chapter members. Tell her you are a chapter member when you call/email her to register.

"Sociodrama has been defined as a deep action method dealing with intergroup relations and collective ideologies. The true subject of a sociodrama is the group. The concept underlying this approach is the recognition that man is a role player, that every individual is characterized by a certain range of roles which dominate his behavior and that every culture is characterized by a certain set of roles which it imposes with a varying degree of success upon its members." - J.L.Moreno

Sociodrama provides an action forum for resolving conflicts among people with different views. It is also effective in clarifying values, developing social skills, solving problems, diagnosing an organization, developing and rehearsing action plans or improving personal effectiveness and awareness. Sociodrama groups may take several approaches to working with their shared experiences. They may work on problem-solving, developing deeper understanding, making decisions or learning new roles. Come have fun, earn Ce's and learn something new.

Through the consistent, harmonious activities of Rainbowdance, we support the development of resilient, happy children.Rainbowdance Basic
The basic model of our program works to
build social empathy, self-confidence and
self-regulation, using music, movement
and storytelling. Rainbowdance is
adaptable for children ages 1-5 as well as
children with special needs and behavioral
challenges. Developed by Dicki Johnson Macy at Boston Children's Foundation. Rainbowdance is now avaible in Greensboro, NC with Angela Wiley.


In Rainbowdance, children will experience:
1. Peer and Parent Support
2. Creative Expression
3. Self-regulation
4. Increased confidence


Transition to Kindergarten
The child who has developed self-esteem
and confidence is prepared to confront
social challenges with curiosity and
courage. Studies show that social and
emotional health at the preschool level
increases children’s readiness for
kindergarten. If they feel regulated,
confident and empathic towards others,
they will be successful in a formal school
environment. In this model we expand the
repertoire, increasing its sophistication to
mirror the challenges children will face in
the formal school environment.

Rainbowdance is also for grown ups!!!

New Group Tues evenings 6:30-7 PM

Concepts will be adapted for adults and offer a relaxing way to ground and let go of stress.
